    As regimes change and public values evolve, controversial public monuments often warrant reexamination. Our panel will explore the complex considerations involved in decisions to change or remove public monuments. The panel will bring together experts from law, history, and art to explore and compare how different countries have handled this controversial topic. Our panelists will share their expertise on how Germany and South Africa dealt with monuments of defeated regimes and compare their treatment with that of confederate monuments in the United States.
     The Section held a virtual business meeting prior to the Annual Meeting.
